Industrial Biotechnology: Biocatalysis through to Synthetic Biology

Industial Biotechnology

This online course focuses on integrating Biocatalysis
and Synthetic Biology into Sustainable Chemical Manufacturing Processes

COMING SOON

This module will introduce options for integrating biocatalysis into chemical manufacturing processes, explore successful examples of biocatalyst design, process operation and biorefining for
sustainable manufacturing, enabling you to:

• Strengthen your knowledge in biocatalysis, and whole biotransformation processes, from fermentation to product.
• Understand the range of chemical conversions accessible by biocatalysis, and examples of successful industrial applications.
• Discover the industrial potential of synthetic biology.
• Explore the challenges and options for large scale biocatalysis.

Course delivery

Enabling self-paced learning through a series of lectures over
15–30 hours. Delegates can access materials for up to 9 months allowing for flexible study.

Who should attend?

This course is designed for all those individuals working in any of the following industries where biocatalysis and synthetic biology is important: Fine and specialty chemicals, pharmaceuticals, personal care products, diagnostics as well as sustainable processing in the biorefining, biofuels and bulk polymer sectors.

Key Topics Include

  • Biorefining principles and challenges
  • Feedstocks and exploitation: process challenges
  • Feedstocks to synthetic building blocks
  • Successful and emerging enzyme chemistries for biocatalysis
  • Biocatalytic reactor design and operation
  • High throughput fermentation and biocatalytic process development
  • Industry perspective on biocatalytic process development
  • Biocatalytic process development for pharmaceutical applications
  • Overview of biocatalyst engineering and synthetic biology
  • Enzyme discovery and metagenomics

This unique module will introduce options for integrating biocatalysis into chemical manufacturing processes, and also explore successful examples of biocatalyst design, process operation and biorefining for sustainable manufacturing.

In this module a series of lectures, problem solving case studies, and a practical workshop will provide close interaction with key academic and industrial speakers, enabling you to:

  • Strengthen your knowledge in biocatalysis, and whole biotransformation processes, from fermentation to product.
  • Understand the range of chemical conversions accessible by biocatalysis, and examples of successful industrial applications.
  • Discover the industrial potential of synthetic biology.
  • Explore the challenges and options for large scale biocatalysis.
